Question about 1994 Mazda MX-6
I will start by saying I know pretty much nothing about cars. I am trying to perform the basics on my own because of the age or my Mazda. It has a 2.5l engine just in case that is important.
I hear a grinding side of the rear right wheel when braking and even sometimes after foot is off the brake. I removed the wheel and brake caliper to expose the pads, one of which looked great and the other was worn down to nothing left. So the pads need replaced. Here is my confusion. I was looking at the top of a large metal piece that the rotor/wheel disc? mounts on to and the metal is rusted and can be broken apart by hand. I thought this was referred to as a brake shoe. When I called an auto parts store to see if they had a certain part in stock they stated my car would not have shoes. I am am confused, does my car have brake shoes or not? Either way this metal piece has rusted and is it important, should it be replaced, how do I do identify what it is.
I have a repair manual and it is OK but sometimes the pictures are inaccurate because it shows the Probe rather than the Mazda. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot
Sounds like you need a new rotor.. ur brake mechanic shouldve told you but alot of mechanic like to keep quiet so you bring it back and they can charge you for more labor
